Ok. I'll ask the question. What is a "bobber"? The term is used quite a bit these days and seems to have lost some meaning. I was in my local Harley dealership today and heard a customer say to his friend, "Hey that's the new Harley bobber." Huh? How can it be a "new" bobber? The bike they were referring to is the new Cross Bones. A Softail Springer with flat paint and some vintage inspired ideas, but a bobber? So what is a bobber? I have my own opinion as do the other Wing Nuts, but we have some pretty similar ideas. It seems to me that anything that is a budget built bike these days is called a bobber. I tend to feel this is used way too liberally. To me a bobber is a rigid framed, stripped down utilitarian motorcycle. It should be no newer than the mid 1950's and for the most part it should have parts removed, not added. Let me know what you think.
